description The Philadelphia Female Anti-Slavery Society (PFASS) was founded in December 1833 and dissolved in March 1870 following the ratification of the 14<sup>th</sup>&nbsp;and 15<sup>th</sup>&nbsp;Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.&nbsp; PFASS was founded by eighteen women, including free blacks Margaretta Forten and her sisters Sarah and Harriet.&nbsp; The most well-known white female abolitionist affiliated with the PFASS was Lucretia Mott, and Angelina Grimk&eacute;, another noted female abolitionist, also joined the organization.&nbsp; The Society was a local chapter affiliated with the American Anti-Slavery Society created the same year but which did not permit women as members.&nbsp; It is worth noting that PFASS was an interracial organization from the start and that free black women took part in its growth and activities, many of them serving in leadership roles.&nbsp; Among other activities, the PFASS advocated for emancipation, boycotted products manufactured by slaves, supported the Underground Railroad, and raised funds for the American Anti-Slavery Society. &nbsp;These are the PFASS meeting minutes for September 1862 to November 1867.
